Breeding Program at the Raptor Farm!

The hot gossip at Shelsley Walsh this weekend was that there will be a 2nd GWR Raptor running on the hills in 2012.

GWR Constructor Graeme Wight Jnr confirmed that he has completed a deal with Jos & Barry Goodyear, which will see Jos driving a sister car to Lee Adams’ Raptor. The new Raptor will join Adams in the 1600cc Racing Car Class at British & Midland Hillclimb Championship events next year.

Jos, who has run a space-framed DJ Firehawk this year is really looking forward to getting into a carbon-tubbed bike-engine car and told us “We have decided to stick with a bike-engined car because I have enjoyed driving the DJ so much. These cars are so much fun to drive, and can be driven flat out so often, that I have no intention of getting back into a V8″.

The Goodyear’s ex. Mason/Day DJ Firehawk is currently for sale – More details to follow.
